Positive attendance schools have the option to take attendance by month. The System Administrator can select the Post Attendance by Month option in Portal Options. When the option is selected, the Pages navigation tree will include Teacher Attendance by Month when logged in as a teacher.

The following page will display to teachers.

Teachers can take attendance by clicking in the boxes to the right of the student’s name in the applicable date column. When using Attendance by Month in a Positive Attendance school, a Present code will be submitted. Changes are effective immediately.

The Mark Absent if not Present option can be used to mark all students absent for the day by selecting the check box at the top right of the date column. The Absent code will be submitted wherethe Present check box is not selected for all students in the class for that date.
